FREE NHS Health Checks
Here at the old exchange @ east street we are dedicated to improving our patients' health and wellbeing and therefore offer patients between the age of 40 and 74 the chance to attend for a FREE NHS Health Check. By taking advantage of this check you have the opportunity of improving your health and preventing the onset of conditions like, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, kidney disease or diabetes.
Your health check should take about 30 minutes and is based on straightforward questions and measurements, such as age, family history, height weight, blood pressure and a simple blood test to measure your cholesterol and glucose level.
There will be an opportunity on the day to find out about the many services that are available to support you, for example, healthy walks, stop smoking service and healthy eating.
Following your health check you will telephoned by one of our nurses to give you your results. A personalised report including advice can be posted to you about what you can do to stay healthy.
If you would like to book an appointment for a health check, please contact the surgery and ask for an appointment with one of our health care assistants.
